I have been working at BJ's Restaurants full-time for more than a year

Pros

Salary + Bonus is great, as well as health benefits, 401K, etc. GM's can top 100K including bonus if they stick around long enough. Lots of corporate structure to support and guide you, you always know exactly what is expected of you.

Cons

If you have a GM that is hard to communicate with it can make it difficult to get certain days off or have a positive work environment. BJ's also expects a lot of work hours from managers, and holidays are blacked out for vacation, so you'll never get to see your family during those important times of the year.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Find a way to have a rotation system so that you can earn your way to eventually taking time off during Christmas/Thanksgiving.

    Pros

    Never a dull moment! Always busy! Great location!

    Parking can be a challenge, for some especially around the holidays/wkends...if your not aware of the 4 levels/parking.

    U Rock!

  2.  

    Good restaurant experience for someone who has none. Easy to learn and work your way up. Managers are pretty nice.

    I worked at BJ's Restaurants part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Staff is easy going and friendly and pretty laid back. Potential to make good money if you put in the effort.

    Cons

    Some of the servers are cranky and get mad if they are either too busy or not busy enough. Hard to please every single person. Can't really trust anyone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management was great.
